Admirable Service Ethics

Gerald has great interior ideas. He offered to visit us, translate our needs into design, have it manufactured in beautiful teak at amazing value. It is his first year in Australia and he is still in process of finding the right craftsmen locally. Local workmanship does let him down, but I admire his persistence to deliver quality. He had to travel multiple times to our home to finish the project but he did it! I have only praised for his buisness ethics.

Excellent process and beautiful furniture

We purchased 2x side tables, ordered directly from the craftsmen in Indonesia. The team at once upon a time in Bowral were attentive and provided us with many options to help us find the perfect bedside tables.
Mia kept us up to date about the shipping process and delivery updates. She was very kind and helpful and is a wonderful person to work with.
I would recommend them for any bespoke furniture orders, or for the unique pieces they display in-store and in their catalogues. The craftsmanship on the bedside tables is faultless (while still having individual variances due to the nature of the natural materials; teak and rattan).

I bought a 4 million year old petrified wood dining table from Once Upon A Time. It is a very unique piece of furniture, perhaps one of the kind. It is beautiful and elegant, 1 was very happy with the service, they were very helpful and professional.
